I am thoroughly ashamed of the fact that I never posted Paul Williams led Temptations material. He was one of the great Classic Five Tempts (David Ruffin, Eddie Kendricks, Otis Williams, Melvin Franklin, Paul Williams.) Temptations fans generally consider Paul the most soulful singer of the group -- a claim I wholeheartedly support.
During the pre-Motown phase of the group, Paul was responsible for their choreography; as can be seen in this clip, he was the smoothest dancer of them all. (Paul is on the right in the back.)
Favorite colors: Green & White
Hobby: Interior Decorating
Paul Williams is the joker of the group, particularly enjoying telling jokes on himself. He has the compact solidity of the ex-football player that he is. He studied to be a cobbler in Birmingham, Alabama where he grew up, but his parents are very glad now of the choice he has made of a vocation. Besides his singing and dancing ability, Paul also plays the guitar, bass and some piano and says his favorite "hate" is wrong notes. He is interested in interior design and lists it as a hobby, with colors being particularly important to him. His favorites are green and white. Being one of nine children, he finds it no hardship to adjust to the confinement of a group of five when on a long series of traveling engagements."
One of his many Temptations leads: I Want A Love I Can See.
